The new NGDP numbers are here ...

And the new GDP data is out! A pretty dismal performance ... but then the Atlanta Fed was saying Q1 seems to come in low these days (H/T to Cullen Roche who also had a good prediction), and in fact pretty much nailed the number with their GDPNow forecast.


I marked the Q1 numbers with blue dots on the prediction graph -- they do seem to have been systematically low since the financial crisis.

Overall: a continuing a trend of lukewarm economic performance, largely still in line with just about any model of the economy.

Also, try to avoid the use of dollar signs as they interfere with my setup of mathjax. I left it set up that way because I think this is funny for an economics blog. You can use € or £ instead.
